Dear What Am I Worth,
I feel my current skill set is unique for an IT job-seeker since I have taken a rather unorthodox career path. I was a university dropout (B.E.) and then a small business owner/operator (heavy transport). I travelled extensively before gaining a New Zealand Diploma in Business. I am currently self-employed, contracting driving services. My technical skills include:
- Intermediate level (self-taught) understanding of HTML and Web page/site design, some Java script knowledge and an understanding of e-commerce principles.
- Familiarity with SDLC and the creation of relational databases (MS Access).
- Competent use of Microsoft software (Word, Excel, Access, Powerpoint, Publisher, Explorer, Outlook, Project etc.).
My soft skills include information management, project management, leadership and relationship building, business and interpersonal communication, organisation and management, business methods and procedures analysis, solid understanding of marketing, accounting and economic principles, introductory skills in employment relations, quantitative business methods and commercial law, and an acute eye for detail.
I have nine years experience owning, operating and managing a transport business, two years' in an operational crew with a UK-based Australasian tour company; participation in a relational database proposal for leading wastewater company; and experience in design, coding, development and maintenance of family and personal Web sites.
Protocol Personnel replies: You will most likely be looking at an entry level role which normally pays about $30,000.
